Superpower or Superlost? The US Role in the Middle East in the Era of Trump:

Strategic Interests and Prospects Going Forward
with Former State Department Negotiator, Aaron David Miller

Sunday, April 19
3:30 pm
Martin Meyer Sanctuary
Free and open to the community

REGISTER HERE

America confronts a broken, angry, dysfunctional Middle East where protecting US interests has become increasingly more complex. In a sense, America is like a modern day Gulliver wandering around in a region that it’s never properly understood, tied up by smaller powers whose interests are not always its own, and burdened by its own illusions. Indeed, the US is stuck in a region that it can neither transform nor leave, a dangerous position for the world’s most consequential power. Gulliver’s Troubles is neither a Democratic nor Republican challenge but an American one that requires a policy based on tough-minded realism and prudence.


The talk will examine what are the strategic threats and opportunities ahead as well as what considerations should US policy makers consider in the future.

Aaron David Miller is currently a Senior Fellow at the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace where he focuses on American diplomacy and US foreign policy.  Prior to coming to Carnegie, Miller was the Vice-President for New Initiatives, Distinguished Scholar and Director of the Middle East Program at the Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars in Washington, DC. Between 2003 and 2006, he was president of Seeds of Peace, an internationally recognized program in conflict resolution and coexistence.  For the previous two decades, Miller served in the Department of State as a historian, analyst, negotiator and adviser on Middle Eastern issues to  Republican and Democratic Secretaries of State.  Miller received his Ph.D. in Middle Eastern and American Diplomatic History from the University of Michigan in 1977. He has written five books, including his most recent The End of Greatness: Why America Can’t Have (and Doesn’t Want) Another Great President. His articles have appeared in the Washington Post, the New York Times, the Los Angeles Times; Politico; Foreign Policy; and USA Today. He is a CNN Global Affairs Analyst and a frequent commentator on NPR, BBC, and Sirius XM radio.

This event is co-sponsored by the New Israel Fund and in partnership with AJC.
